Company History

Geographe Excavation and Underground Power started out as a small owner operated company in 2004.   With an excavator, a bobcat and a truck, founding Director Matthew Gatty had the vision to provide excavation services to the building and construction industry in the south west town of Dunsborough.

Matthew’s previous experience had been in the civil construction industry installing underground power across the Perth metropolitan area and working on the project to provide underground power to the Bunker Bay Resort.

An opportunity presented itself for Geographe Excavation to install underground power to a small 11 lot rural subdivision in Yallingup. Matthew recognised a gap in the market for providing underground services to smaller sized subdivisions.

Over the years the company grew and gained more exposure to underground power and communication installations on larger and more complex projects. The company’s technical abilities also increased to include directional drilling and cable jointing.
